Changing the future of mobility in 24 hours

September 7, 2016

Could smartphone apps hold the key to improving mobility in cities?

We’re challenging app developers against the clock to create concepts that could help make life easier for drivers, build communities, make businesses more efficient and even make cities healthier.


The 24-hour Ford SYNC AppLink Mobility Challenge is open to start-ups, entrepreneurs and established companies from across Europe, with the chance to win a €20,000 top prize and places on sought-after accelerator programmes like Startup Next By Techstars, and Axel Springer Plug & Play.

Our SYNC with AppLink technology enables drivers to voice-control apps while keeping their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel, and is available as part of our new SYNC3 connectivity system.
Ford experts will be on hand to support participants during the challenge that takes place at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin. Our SYNC AppLink Developer Program helps more than 15,000 registered users develop AppLink-compatible apps year-round.
